Ife Awonubi

Dried Honey

Dried Honey
On decayed mass
Courier to steps of rainbows
Destined for doom

Reluctant lips
Withdraw gradually
Allegiance to the repugnance
Oozing form frustrated nipples

Scrawny limps
Scramble for solace
In fading glories
Lingering in limbo hearts

Barren land
Epidemic of living corpses
With sunken sockets
Dry from tears of gold

Heaven's gates locked in defiant tackle
Against earth's entrance
With the scrimmage of life and death
Echoing schizophrenic notes
